my ratings:

RNG: 5
HSS: -2
LSS: +2.5
PWR: 4

flight path is similar to a mid-weight dx valk/dx viking or elite x xs... it is VERY easy to throw and flies well with little power on it. a lot of glide and fast penetration.

is quite high speed understable. definite hyzer flip disc if you have more than 325' of power. will flatten/turn from a hyzer without having to force it over. dome height and understability do not make it a good head/cross wind disc.

great roller/turnover disc for bigger throwers.

I was going to ask about the spectra. I have a very nice tan one, but I hesitate to throw it. How similar is it to say a slipstream (which I really like by the way).

If I am throwing trackers, slipstreams, and avengers (with an occasional cyclone), is there overlap if I were to add my spectra to my bag?

The best use ive found for the spectra is monster distance downwind. It has tremendous glide for a faster driver. and is understable just enough to carry long on downwind. no wind it is hard to control in any style other than hyzer flip, but isnt as consistant to my nicely worn x cyclone on that line. Its not consistant enough for me on anhyzer lines either.

I still haven't thrown mine; it may turn into a wallhanger.

I've been throwing a 172g Spectra a bit. Here are my observations: Extremely fast, fairly understable-kinda like a champ valk. All the times I've thrown it were in windy condtions, so I don't know what it does in calm conditions. BTW, it seems to outfly every other disc on downwind shots. I don't really like the full color painting either since it makes the disc hard to find. Weaker arms will love the spectra though.

Threw this disc some more today (finally calm conditions) This disc is for real. If you get it flat it will outfly anything out there including the wraith. IMO everybody should tote one of these around for huge drives in calm conditions. The paint on the top makes them a bit hard to find though. BTW, this disc is awesome for tailwinds but don't even think about tossing it into a headwind.
